Ensuring recurring revenue is essential for businesses if they want to continue operating at peak performance. And when you're able to bring your revenue tool into the fold with your email marketing tool, you can implement strategies that lead to more predictable revenue.
Let’s explore the unique features and benefits of Recurly and consider why and how you can integrate Recurly with Benchmark Email.
Why Use Recurly?
No one loves having conversations around money, especially when it involves requesting overdue payments. For eCommerce sites, the solution to avoiding these awkward conversations could be as simple as evolving billing models. So, instead of relying heavily on typical credit card payments that aren't automated and require reminders and invoices, eCommerce businesses can opt for a subscription commerce approach for more reliable revenue (without the hassle).
Figuring out how to deliver top-notch services can be a no-brainer. But establishing a payment structure that lends itself to an overall positive experience for your customers and your business is more difficult. The last thing businesses want is issues with credit card payments that could negatively affect revenue flow. And if the experience around payment is unpleasant, it could lead to decreased customer trust and advocacy.
But not with Recurly! Recurly comes with several notable features that make setting up subscription commerce super easy. Some Recurly perks include:
Customers love having options, especially when it comes to how they pay for services. With Recurly, businesses can create as many subscription plans as they want. And, the more payment options available to customers, the more revenue opportunity businesses will experience.
Recurly is also set up to help you manage all your items for sale with a custom catalog. You can keep track of item details, tax information, and price, so nothing gets overlooked. Oh, and want to track success? Recurly helps deliver predictable revenue by offering analytics on subscription information.
And no worries if you're constantly evolving billing practices. Recurly allows you to provide one-time purchases, recurring add-ons, and connect with other systems, so your offering is as flexible as you and your customers need it to be.
Recurly has designed a perfect system that is easy to operate, especially for evolving billing models. Be it credit card payment, ACH, invoices, PayPal, or other, you can set up processing for whichever method you prefer.
